  • I don't know, as of now, but in Soviet times in the holiday season to get into the Panorama was very difficult during the holiday season. The first time I did it 50 years ago when, by withstanding a huge queue, I'm with my parents saw the huge painting of Franz Roubaud. This time, in January we hit almost freely into a panorama. Shortly before I saw a Panorama "battle of Waterloo in Belgium. So when inspecting the Sevastopol panorama again was attended by two effects: memories of youth and fresh memories of its European counterpart. Once again I can say that our panorama is in no way as well, and maybe superior panorama in Waterloo. So much so that its heroes are well known since childhood, and Admiral Nakhimov, and soldiers of the cat, and dasha Sevastopolskaya ...

  • For children is not very interesting. Just a big pie scene-a life-size from the history of Defense of Sevastopol.

  • Very beautiful place. Located within the Park. The panorama itself is not very big, but nice. Better with a guide to go around, a lot of interesting things to tell. Ticket price: adult and 100 ₽ 200 ₽ shooting on camera and phone
